Anthony Rodriguez is a native of New Jersey, USA. He studied for 7 years as a self-taught musician, and at the age of 16 became the pianist for his home church in NJ. In 1997 Anthony was gathered with a group of talented musicians that had the same interest in music.
Together with his friends they would go into countless hours in recording sessions just to compose and record ideas that someday would become an album. At the age of 17 he was introduced to professional musicians that worked together with Super Star singer Marc Anthony.
